R. Anthony Williams

Restructuring the JMA as part of a thrust toward greater professionalism is one of the hallmarks of R. Anthony Williams’ tenure (1981-1985). The formation of the Trafalgar Development Bank (now Pan Caribbean Financial Services) to provide low-interest development loans to the productive sector was another major JMA initiative, which was guided to success by the Williams administration, as manufacturers grappled with the challenges posed by the Government’s structural adjustment and economic deregulation programmes in the early 80’s.
